Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit Discussion

Dear Dorotheus,

Harabaz Druid is definitely not weak. With him I am able to cast my whole hand on turn 3, so she speeds up the game like nothing else. I was thinking about Thalia's Lieutenant or Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit for o long time but since they are not allies so they can not trigger Kabira Evangel I do not play them.

I was testing Banishing Light but it proved to be too slow so I go back to Scout's Warning which you are suggesting. I added AEther Vial between cards which should not be suggested, thanks for pointing out.

This deck is running no-AER cards right now, since I will be playing it on the first week, before I get my pre-orders. Despit this, I don't expect much changes.

+1/+1 counters cancel out -1/-1 counters, so Kitchen Finks becomes a regular 3/2 again with no counters on it after the bolster trigger from Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit resolves.

I don't think the Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit and Kitchen Finks combo works like that...Persist says "when this creature dies, if it had no -1/-1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield with a -1/-1 counter" so you may be keeping the creature alive with bolster from Anafenza but the persist ability won't activate because it has a -1/-1 counter on it.

Grenzo does sound fun! The Murderous Redcap + Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit combo works because adding the +1/+1 counter actually does remove the -1/-1 counter according to the rules. I can certainly see how that could be confusing, though.

Hello, can you explain to me how does the Murderous Redcap + Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit + sac outlet combo work? I think that you can't infinitaly loop it, because the additionnal +1/+1 counter does not remove the -1/-1 counter which was put there by Persist. They just "negate" each other = there will be a +1/+1 and a -1/-1 counter on the Redcap thus he won't comeback 2nd time. I hope that i haven't missed something important, it's 0:24 so it is quite possible :D Nice deck by the way, what about Grenzo, Havoc Raiser for some fun games? That is my only suggestion.

i have a question which im hesitant to ask 'cus its kinda nooby (im sort of new to modern) and i fear the response of mtg oldboys giving me hassle (which i get a lot of lately,the mtg community has not been kind to me).. please bare with me, here goes..

the question is about counters and persist creatures

Kitchen Finks leaves the battlefield and comes back with a -1/-1 i understand its usually used with some sac outlet and Melira, Sylvok Outcast so Finks comes back without the -1/-1's creating a loop..

in the podcast Alex goes through a Kitchen Finks,Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit loop.. anafenza giving +1/+1 counters to counter the -1/-1 from persist effects.. is this right?

paraphrased,persist reads "if this creature has a -1/-1 counter it doesnt come back"

do the +1/+1 counters from anafenza LITERALLY remove the -1/-1 counters from the persist creatures,effectively cancelling the effect of persist? if that happens then fair enough..but if the creature has both -1/-1 counters AND +1/+1 counters surely persist wouldnt work because the creature does have a -1/-1 counter on it??

which is correct and why?

i hope this makes sense.

cheers, have a good new year folks
